prism2_pci with Linksys WMP11 - SIOCIFFLAG: No such device

Post by Adam Smi » Mon, 06 May 2002 14:28:41

Can anyone help me out with using the prism2_pci module with a
PCI-based card?  So much of what I can find on the newsgroups etc. is
aimed at PCMCIA interfaces.

I have Mandrake 8.2 on a system which includes a Linksys WMP11 PCI
802.11 adapter, which I believe is a Prism 2.5 device?

I can do "insmod p80211" and then "insmod prism2_pci" and both seem to
succeed, giving only the "Using /lib/modules/..." message.  In
/var/log/messages I see:
"[...] kernel: init_module: prism2_pci.o: 0.1.13 Loaded"
"[...] kernel: init_module: dev_info is: prism2_pci"
"[...] kernel: PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0f.0"
"[...] kernel: PCI: Sharing IRQ 10 with 00:0d.0"
"[...] kernel: A Prism2.5 PCI device found, phymem:0xd7000000, irq:10"
"[...] kernel: , mem:0xd4862000"
"[...] /etc/hotplug/net.agent: invoke ifup wlan0"

At this point, "ifconfig wlan0" works, but I can't get it to accept an
address (e.g. with "ifconfig wlan0 <addr>").  "ifup wlan0" says
"SIOCIFFLAGS: No such device" then "Failed to bring up wlan0."

"iwconfig wlan0" gives "wlan0     no wireless extensions."

"cat /proc/net/wireless" in some states seems to show link/level/noise
readings, but also frequently shows all zeros.

I feel like I'm missing something small - any pushes in the right
direction would be much appreciated!



1. How do I get a Linksys WMP11 Wi-Fi PCI card to work under Linux

Ok folks, I've giving up on Mandrake.  That and the fact I asked for
help in a Mandrake group and people didn't believe me when I said I
was using a WMP11 card (which is a wireless PCI card - not a PCMCIA
card)(and no it's not the 2.7 version).  So I'm trying Red Hat 8.0

I found a really good website:

But it's not enough, it still isn't working.  I can ping the card, but
I can't ping my router.  I'm using 128 bit WEP with a SMC7004AWBR
router.  Is there anyway I can use a GUI to set up this card???

Thanks in advance,

Please reply in these newsgroups, I'll find the responces through
Google Groups.
